5 Tips for Better and Healthier Looking Skin

Your skin is your most important organ, from a visual perspective anyhow. And like all of our organs the way we treat it shows.

No matter how much we care about our skin, there’s always room to improve on it and we've compiled a number of great tips to help you do so.

Skin Type

Knowing the sort of skin that you have is a big help when it comes to understanding how to deal with it and give it the best care. Dry skins need a very different approach to mixed or oily skin and it’s also worth remembering that your skin varies from season to season too. So, be aware of this as it will help you ensure that you take care of it in the best possible manner no matter how it changes. Skincare by Alana is a good website for tips on skin types and also care.


Different scrubs and exfoliate will have different impacts on different skin. There is no such thing as one for all skin and so you need to test and try and inform yourself as best as possible in this regard. Consult with a dermatologist for the best possible results.

Sun Cream

A very important part of your skin process. SPF sun creams or moisturizers are one of the mainstays of healthy skin. Of course, it’s not just the summer time that you should be wearing them either. SPF creams should be worn during the winter as well as the summer – there are still sun rays in gloomy weather. In fact, the sun is often harsher on the skin in this sort of weather as the clouds amplify the amount of light that damages skin that comes through to the skin. Oil free and powder sun screens are a good option.


Water is one of the most important parts of good skin and one that a lot of people don’t get enough of. Water helps cleanse the skin and will rejuvenate it. No matter how many times people are told that they need to drink 2 liters of water at least a day, they still don’t. Frankly, it’s a big issue for skin and without it you will be pushing against the grain.


A very important factor too. Cleansing properly will help get rid of all the oil, dirt and makeup that gathers in the powers throughout the day. Cleansing twice a day will help lift a large amount of this and one of the best tools for the job is the Clarisonic as it keeps skin clear and prevents problems.

It Takes Time

Skin doesn't just improve over night, however if you have some patience you will see results. One of the biggest reasons people don’t see improvements in skin is down to the fact they don’t have the patience to continue these changes. If you do, you will most likely see better skin, but give it up to two months.

Great skin is a fantastic thing and can make your whole appearance a lot more attractive. These tips will help ensure that you have a clear, bright appearance.
